Jezza boost

Daily Star - - NEWS -

THE Rail, Mar­itime and Trans­port union will not reaf­fil­i­ate to Labour but will “align“it­self to Jeremy Cor­byn’s party.

The union wants its 80,000 mem­bers to be ac­tive within Labour and will al­low branches to fund can­di­dates at elec­tions. But it stopped short of restor­ing per­ma­nent fi­nan­cial links, ended in 2004.

Gen­eral sec­re­tary Mick Cash said: “Mem­bers have re­acted an­grily to con­stant at­tempts by a hard core of Labour MPs to un­der­mine Jeremy Cor­byn.”
